My school is doing a staggered return and alternating school days for our pupils. My daughter is in Grade 3 at my school and has been speeding through the work assigned by her teacher. Last week the Grade 3s were assigned a task on Insects. The Minibeasts Pack is a lifesaver for me because now she has sufficient work to occupy her when she isn't at school, in addition to learning additional content!
Thank you, Mark and Helen for the outstanding work you create!
Wow! What a lot of wonderful resources. Any teacher teaching minibeasts will find this a real treasure trove, and it is also great for life cycles, craft lessons and many other topics. I especially like the guessing game and the arts and crafts ideas. Well done!
This pack is absolutely brilliant, I'm teaching lessons via Zoom and when I send out resource packs to my students these activities will be brilliant to supplement their learning. Huge variety, great craft ideas, really useful, thank you.
This is FAB. I am a Beaver Scout Leader so this pack has all the resources needed for a Mini Beast themed camp 🙂
